KMWorld Names Inmagic Presto a Trend-Setting Product of 2009

Award Recognizes Presto’s Customer- and Market-Based Approach of Applying Social Technologies Securely Inside the Enterprise to Drive Next-Generation Knowledge Management

WOBURN, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today KMWorld Magazine announced Inmagic Presto has been presented the publication’s prestigious Trend-Setting Product of 2009 award. The honor recognizes innovative knowledge management solutions that serve vendors’ full spectrum of constituencies, particularly their customers.

This award is the latest in a long list of accolades that Inmagic has earned over the past 25 years for defining the way knowledge assets are managed, retrieved, shared, and acted upon. According to KMWorld editors, Presto was distinguished for its customer-driven innovation, and its unique approach in applying social technologies in a secure enterprise environment to enable companies to capture – and capitalize on – their collective domain expertise.

“Presto is at the forefront of the move to social knowledge management,” said Hugh McKellar, editor-in-chief at KMWorld. “It builds off the social media wave in a unique way, while addressing a real market need for consolidating information silos, improving content quality, and increasing employee productivity.”

Earlier this year, KMWorld also named Inmagic One of the 100 Companies that Matter in Knowledge Management for 2009. Industry-leading organizations around the globe continue to adopt Presto at a rapid rate over competing technologies in the special library and knowledge management markets. New Presto customers this year include Laureate, Maple Leaf Foods, MRA, and the City of Edmonton. Information and knowledge management professionals from companies including NASA, Newsweek, The National Endowment for Democracy, RV Anderson Associates, and The Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts already rely on Presto for Inmagic’s ability to adapt and integrate knowledge management and social technologies in the secure, Web-based environment.

Presto integrates social technologies with enterprise content, search, access, and discovery capabilities, enabling information professionals to create Social Knowledge Networks -- combining top-down vetted information with bottom-up social intelligence for a 360-degree view of information assets. This year, Inmagic introduced the first application built on Presto, Inmagic® Presto for Social Libraries. The application creates a SOPAC (Social Online Public Access Catalog) that provides a unique framework for managing and enhancing library collections and allows a secure, two-way information exchange between librarians and patrons.

“We’ve remained a market leader for 25 years because we listen to our customers,” said Ron Matros, CEO of Inmagic. “We’re responding to the demand for social knowledge management – that’s why we were one of the first companies to make a serious commitment to R&D that would bring Social Knowledge Networks to the marketplace. By partnering with our customers, we are meeting a market need and continuing the evolution of Presto’s technology as information professionals learn new ways to put it to use and benefit from it.”

More than 800 products were assessed by KMWorld’s judging panel, which included the publication’s editorial staff, as well as system integrators, vendors, line-of-business managers, and end users. The Trend-Setting Product awards have been held annually since 2003.
